This is a super easy Easter idea to put together and looks cute and effortless for the big day. If you’re really pressed for time, all that’s required is a strip of wholesale Easter ribbon which is long enough to wrap around the base of the hat once (see image for reference).

If you’re feeling fancy and have a little extra time, paper flowers (homemade or bought) glued to the hat wherever you or your little one likes can really liven up this Spring-inspired bonnet.

Ideal if you have additional time on your side, this beautiful Easter bonnet uses a healthy combination of Easter ribbon and crafty extras to make a bunny-inspired bonnet. And, although it looks complicated, this can be made in just an hour or two – so no need to worry about getting it done in time!

To begin, you want to take your wholesale ribbon of choice and attach this around the base of your straw hat in the same way as we did for the first bonnet idea. Once this is secure, it’s now time to get artsy! Using a stencil or free hand, draw a pair of rabbit ears onto card, and cut these out ready to glue onto the front of your bonnet!

That’s the precise parts out of the way, now it’s the fun bit that your little one will love to get involved in! Simply glue your flowers around the base of your hat, using the Easter ribbon as a guide. You can opt for as many or as few as you like.

After that, if you’re wanting to add any extras such as carrots or Easter eggs, now is the time to get your glue and put those in place. We advise leaving everything for around 30 minutes to dry and set.

  1. Traditional Easter bonnet

Another great option if you’re limited on time and want something sweet and traditional to send your little one off to school in, this traditional Easter bonnet optimises the use of ribbon to create an elegant looking Easter hat.

What you will need:

  • A plain straw hat
  • Easter ribbon of your choice
  • Crafting glue
  • Craft flowers
  • Craft foliage
  • Scissors

To make this traditional Easter bonnet you want to start by carefully making two slits in the rim, close to the base of the hat using scissors. Then, taking your favourite Easter ribbon you want to then thread two pieces into the slits, creating knots on the top of the hat to stop the ribbon sliding back through.

Next, take your craft foliage around the base of the hat, and glue it into place. This will work as a cover-up for the ribbon knots you’ve created, as well as looking fantastic!  We recommend leaving this to dry for around 20 minutes, before grabbing your craft flowers and adding these in.

Once all is dry your hat will be ready to wear the next day! Secure by simply tying the ribbon underneath the chin in a pretty bow.
